Hot on the heels of finding out just how much RAM the new iPhone 13 lineup has, we now know how much is tucked inside the newest iPad models, too. Of course, this isn’t official, as Apple isn’t going out of its way –as usual– to tell anyone just how much RAM is in these products. But, considering the source, it’s all but confirmed.
As noted today by MacRumors, the latest version of the Xcode 13 beta has rooted out just how much RAM is inside the sixth-generation iPad mini (what may have been the star of the show at Apple’s California Streaming event earlier this week), and what’s available in the ninth-generation entry-level iPad as well. Surprisingly enough, Apple actually did increase the available RAM in the smaller tablet, while the iPad keeps things the same from the previous generation.
Still, while it might not be a lot of RAM, especially compared to some devices out there, it should be enough to get the job done on a day-to-day basis.
The report states that, according to the Xcode 13 beta strings, the iPad mini 6 has been bumped up to 4GB of RAM. That’s not a huge increase, as the previous generation model had 3GB of RAM. But, couple that with the A15 Bionic processor under the hood and it sounds like the small tablet should hum along just fine.
Meanwhile, the ninth-generation entry-level iPad is keeping things the same from the eighth-generation model, with 3GB of RAM under the hood.
So, nothing crazy. Which should be expected, honestly. Still, it’s nice to see the iPad mini getting plenty of the attention and love it deserves after all these years. Both the iPad mini 6 and iPad 9 are available to order now, with availability starting next week.
